ADN completed & currently enrolled in BSN. Will I be able to find a job in Salt Lake?


Hi all! I am hoping to move from California to Utah following the graduation of my ADN and passing my NCLEX. I am co-enrolled in an online BSN program and will be approximately half way through with my bachelor's degree when applying for RN positions. Will I be hirable in salt lake area? In southern CA it can be tough to find a job as an ADN right now, is it the same case in salt lake? I've also heard that because I'm co-enrolled in a BSN I might be considered. Is this true in your opinion? I'm hoping to find a job in maternal-fetal health, but I am also happy to start on a med-surg floor. I've been a CNA on an oncology/gynecology floor of large hospital for 3 years, no warnings, 3.5 GPA, vice president of my current program if any of that might help? I'm nervous yet helpful, any advice is appriciated. Thank you in advance for your time!

You won't be excluded with your ADN. They will likely have you sign a "will complete BSN within X amount of years". Which you're already going to have going.

Apply for Intermountain Healthcare's mom/baby new grad programs. They are the dominant hospital system in the state that will make maternal/fetal the highest probability for you. Also apply at U of U.
